Thank you for your reply. We have lived in Arizona for about 37 years. My wife and I took our daughter, after she graduated from the University, on a European tour. Following the tour we took the high-speed train up to Brussels and stayed with a family, with the same last surname, in Charleroi, BE. He took us to Wasmes and we saw the house where my grandparents and father lived. It was strange walking the streets where my father grew up.
It's great that you are starting your family tree. Please feel free to look at mine. If you have an account on Ancestry.com I can grant you permission to view my tree as it is probably more up to date. Since working on my tree and researching, I've been in contact with a 4th cousin that lives in the area around Wasmes/Mons.
I enjoy communicating with you and hope to continue. To contact me direct through e-mail use: email@example.com
Het lijkt me weinig waarschijnlijk dat we op het zelfde spoor zitten, maar ik zoek informatie over Pieters. Mijn grootmoeder heette Emma Pieters en is geboren in Boekhoute (noorden van Oost-Vlaanderen). Vermoedelijk zijn haar ouders ook uit die streek.
Good day Anne. my mother was also a Van Wynsberghe and sometimes spelt as Wijnsberghe. She was born in 1922 and came to Canada as a war bride. Her parents were August Van Wynsberghe and Leontina Cuelemans. I was just in Belguim at the end of May to find my roots. I do have some paper work from the clerks office in the town of s'Gravenwezel that shows the heritage of VAVA. he was one of 24 children. if you would like, i can scan some copies and send to you. N/C of course since we are all related.
there are numberous Van Wynsberghe's in the Delhi area that i have not met but my mother did when she was alive. My Cousin's daughter has started a webpage looking for family as well and she is located in Schelle, Belgiium.
